September 30: Mo Gilligan – Momentum

British comedian Mo Gilligan entertains his audience with smooth moves and shar humour in his Netflix stand-up special called Mo Gilligan: Momentum.

The funnyman riffs on his humble beginnings, certain family dynamics and the complex art of dancing in the club, with the show expected to last just over an hour.

It was just in July when Mo landed his own show on Channel 4, The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, which featured games, music, celebrity interviews, and so much more.

Mo is certainly keeping himself busy, that's for sure.

September 27: The Politician

A wealthy student named Payton Hobart (played by Ben Platt) mounts his campaign to finally get elected as the student president of his high school.

The task proves to be challenging for him, so he finds the help of his mother (Gwyneth Paltrow) to get him the title.

Ryan Murphy is the man behind the creation of the show, so it's very likely that, if you loved his work in Glee, American Horror Story, and Scream Queens, this might be something to check out.

September 25: Glitch – season 3

Glitch has officially entered its third season and fans are beyond ecstatic to have the show back with a bunch of new episodes.

The Australian mystery drama is about a group of people who returned from the dead in perfect health, and, of course, everything isn't quite what it seems to be.

September 20: Criminal (TV Series)

Criminal was one of the most anticipated series to drop on Netflix in September – presumably because British actor David Tennant happens to star in the groundbreaking show.

It is centred around 12 unique stories, based in France, the UK, Germany and Spain, with each episode filmed in that specific language.

The interesting part about this show is that the series is entirely filmed within the confines of a police interview room.

Netflix has since described it as a “stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama” which “focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects.”

While the show is set in multiple countries, the series as a whole was actually shot at Netflix’s production hub at Ciudad de la Tele in Madrid.

September 17: Unbelievable (TV Series)

Unbelievable is a new series released by Netflix, focusing its attention on a young woman who was shockingly accused of fabricating a rape report.

Merritt Wever and Toni Collette play the undercover detectives handling the case, and it goes without saying that the gritty narrative will leave you floored.

September 13: Top Boy (TV Series)

Top Boy made its return with a third run on September 13, so if you are a fan of the previous two seasons, you’ve probably already seen all 10 episodes of the new series.

Viewers were left confused when Top Boy was labelled as season one on the streaming platform, which was later explained to be for the main reason that Netflix wants to rebrand the title, but still keeping all of its writers, creators and actors on board.

Thanks to the help of Canadian rapper Drake, Top Boy’s third series is in full effect starring some of our favourites, including Kane Robinson and Ashley Walters.

September 13: Marianne (TV Series)

Marianne is a French thriller series with a bunch of thriller elements that will leave you sleeping with the lights on at night.

A young writer named Emma realises that the characters she’s been writing about in her novels also exist in the real world, causing all kinds of havoc.

There are a whopping number of eight episodes in the series, with Victoire Du Bois, Lucie Boujenah, Tiphaine Daviot and Mireille Herbstmeyers leading the cast.

Do note that the entire series is in French, so if reading subtitles isn’t your thing, this might be a show to pass on.

Rest assured, however, that this is a horror series you certainly don’t want to miss – and that’s purely based on how scary the narrative is.

September 12: The I-Land (TV Series)

The I-Land is a mystery series which sees ten people wake up on a strange island with absolutely no memory of how they got there.

With no contact to their loved ones, the bunch has to figure out a way to make it back home before learning that the act of survival on an island proves to be rather challenging.

As the series goes on, viewers will understand what really happened, and the revelation is bound to shock you.

September 11: Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father – season 3

In the third run, Jack Whitehall brings his father Michael to the USA, but the trip turns out to be anything but usual for the two.

Michael is often caught out of his comfort zone, as the trailer shows a specific moment where the British producer is exposed to a number of naked men.

Together, the pair visit Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas, but to know what else they will get up to, you’ll have to check out the series – out now on Netflix!

While season one consisted of six episodes and season two with five, the show’s third run only has two episodes, which is quite a downer.

But, in case you haven’t seen it, make sure you do check it out.

September 8: The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco (TV Series)

In this revival of the ITV series, Millie and Jean head out to San Francisco where they hope to use their code-breaking skills to solve the biggest murders in town.

The show isn’t actually a Netflix original, but we’re just glad that the show has found another home for its viewership to enjoy.

Julie Graham, Rachael Stirling, Crystal Balint and Chanelle Peloso lead the stellar cast – but we have yet to find out whether there’ll be a follow-up series to the exhilarating show.

September 6: The Spy (TV Series)

The Spy is an English-language French thriller mini-series written and directed by the ever-so-talented Gideon Raff and Max Perry.

Sacha Baron Cohen plays the real-life Mossad agent Eli Cohen, and if you aren’t familiar with the story, he successfully went undercover in Syria in the early 1960s.

The narrative transpires during the years reaching 1967 when an enormous conflict between Israel and Syria commenced.

September 2: Falling Inn Love (Movie)

If you’re into cheesy romantic flicks, then this is exactly the movie you should be watching.

Starring former R&B singer and socialite Christina Milian, the ageless beauty plays a tech worker in Silicon Valley who finds herself moving to New Zealand.

Her reason for the move came after she won an inn via an online competition, and, of course, she falls in love quite suddenly.

Need we say more? It’s a cheesy romantic film, but tackiness isn’t always bad, especially if you’ve got a weakness for these kinds of flicks.
